Miniature Pinscher Puppies
Description: The Miniature Pinscher, also know as the Min Pin, is a well-balanced, sturdy, compact little dog that is short-coupled and smooth-coated. They have short smooth fur that comes in colors of black, blue, red or chocolate. They have short naturally erect or drop ears, and most are often cropped, as is the tail docked. They resemble tiny Doberman Pinschers, although entirely unrelated. Min Pins are dogs who are proud, vigorous and alert. They have a lot of spirit and pizzazz; a bundle of energy. They are fun loving extroverts who are great in the show ring or make clever companions. Miniature Pinschers do well as a house dog who are at their best being the family watchdog. They have a bark that won't quit when they suspect danger is near, and they are always looking out for their family. Miniature Pinschers are not small Dobermans, but they sure can act like them. They are protective, robust and confident in nature. Affectionate and loving with their owners, their owners are their main protective priority. These little dogs are usually wary with strangers, and aggressive with other dogs. Vibrant, vivacious and perky, they are always on the go for the person or family who wants to go with them.

blue, stag red (red with an intermix of black hairs), or chocolate. They can
also come in combinations of black and tan or chocolate and tan, with tan markings

Pinschers are lively and alert. They are very protective and watchful, making
them good watch dogs. They are noisy dogs, barking at anything unusual. Mini
Pins are perky and upbeat, but can be aggressive with other dogs and wary around
strangers. They will react to provocation. They are not guard dogs, however,
and would probably only be able to bite someone's ankle. Although protective,
they are naturally sweet dogs. They are loyal and mostly inside dogs. They are
strong-willed, difficult to train, and very curious. This breed is not for the
weak-willed, or for the old woman who wants to spoil her puppy. They will take
over the house if given the chance.
Very High. Min Pins are a fearless protector of the home.
Care and Exercise:
Miniature Pinschers should be combed, brushed or rubbed on their smooth
coat regularly to remove loose hairs. This should also make the coat shine.
Shampoo only when necessary. Teeth should be checked and cleaned often. The
Miniature Pinscher needs vigorous exercise for a little dog. Give them the opportunity
to run and play in the yard or daily walks on a lead are suggested.

Pinschers are extremely active and energetic.
